This one pours from 750ml caged and corked bottle a hazy straw yellow with a 2 finger head of foam that shrinks some but the retention is firmly in the "+good" category and look at all that lacing! After the second pour, I have a nice cloudy glass of Carnevale and that's the way I like it for the style. ;^)
The smell has a lot of good funk to it along with some pronounced grapefruit, and wheat. Smells....very inviting!
The taste pretty much reflects the nose. Wheat, grapefruit, pepper, and that funky goodness that I always look forward to tasting in a Saison. Yum.
More sips in and I notice some tropical fruit notes but the Brett working its magic is what I enjoy the most. Highly drinkable, medium mouthfeel, and the carbonation is lightly done.
Bottom line: This Saison is hitting my taste buds really well and I look forward to drinking it again. My thanks to Joey for grabbing some for me!! blipp (9920) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Plain malty base, light sweetness, hints of fruit, toast, and a quick muted finish. Not bad for its age. TrappistenOli (319) - Bern, SWITZERLAND - OCT 15, 2013

Bottle. 25.4 oz. Pours clean orange golden, with a thin, wispy, lacy white head. Aroma of corriander, sage, clove, lemon zest, slight funk, and traces of yeast. Medium bodied with a mildly spicy, crisp, refreshingly smooth and thirst-quenching palate. Finishes a bit dry and florally. Excellent saison.

Auction winner. This is solid just like the everything else they make.
Nice dark fruit and plum taste with belgian spice and bread. A pleasant sweet, sugary aroma. Really good!

Thanks to kiefdog for bringing this one to the tasting. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Nose is citrus, booze, hay, slight funk, brett, and some fruity notes. Flavor is the same with a mild brett presence, and funk. Sweetness, apple, pepper, yeast, and more sweetness give this beer a nice summer evening feel. Medium bodied and very enjoyable for a brett-spiked beer.

not much of an aroma but this was a real pleasent beer. spices and yeast where nicely balanced. nothing really dominated another flavour. Thanks Andrew! JRock72 (597) - - SEP 18, 2011
Bottle thanks to Andrew. Poured hazy golden yellow with little head that retained. Nice spicy, floral yeast notes with little bit of grain flavours in the finish. Very enjoyable. Slight alcoholic finish. Ontbeertaster (3208) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2011
Bought about a month ago but it does not say 2009 on the label and there is nothing about brett on it at all. So I assume this is the right rating. It pours a bright yellow with a white foam head, smell of yeast and lots of flowers. The beer is filled with yeasty tastes along with a bit of fruit punch in there. Very wild mix. good offering jw0406 (1315) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2011
